's the big question, right? >> looking at the influence of the freshmen today, in general they believe and have very involved local voters to back them up that they were elected in 2010 with a mission to, reign in big government, specifically big government spending, and this debt ceiling debate fits right into that. here's more from one freshman tea partier. >> it would allow the debt ceiling to go up, but only if we had significant cuts, statutory caps and balanced budget amendment and there's a growing movement with that. we met with leadership, we met with majority leader eric cantor and were trying to impress upon them that we need to be for something as republicans, we need to define what we're for. >> senator paul says this is a fight, quote, too important to give up. jon. jon: what kind of influence do the new members have, though? >> well, republicans are in the minority and the senate, so less there, but in the house they're in the majority and tea partiers, or those who agree with the tea party on fiscal issues, among the 87 how freshmen have not been shy about staking their
connections between the district attorney's office and strauss-khan's lawyers. and the big thing here, he said regardless of any credibility issues, as richard was just outlining there, his client was raped, pure and simple. and this is graphic stuff. i want to play some sound, richard roth, let's listen together. >> the only defense that dominique strauss-khan is that this sexual encounter was consensual, that is a lie. he grabbed her vagina with so much force that he bruised her vagina. when she went to the hospital later that day, the nurses who examined her saw the bruises on her vagina that were caused by dominique strauss' hand, and they took pictures of the bruises on her vagina, and the district attorney has those pictures. when dominique strauss-khan threw the victim to the floor, he tore a ligament in her shoulder, that is a medical fact. dominique strauss-khan ripped her stockings. there are holes, rips, in her stockings, and the d.a. knows that. when she was on her knees and he was sexually assaulting her, after he finished, she got up and started to run for that door. and started
and dime the people who need it most but when it comes to war, there's a big, fat blank check. we need to be honest with ourselves. we need to be honest with each other. across the country, the americans, hard working, tax paying citizens who oppose war. they oppose their hard earned dollars being sent overseas to support 10 long years of war. but let me be clear. they do not oppose paying their taxes. they are not anarchists rr anti-government activists. but as conscientious objectors to war these americans want their taxes invested here at home. think want to provide food for the homeless, pave roads and strong schools. they want medicare and social security to exist for their parents, their children and their grandchildren. they want their tax dollars to care for soldiers and their families when they return home. they will see an end and cure to cancer. they want a cure for aids. they want to see small business thrive. and innovation become the en-in of our economy. they want high speed rail like in asia. they want transit systems that are safe and get people where they knead to go.
been lost for years. but at least one city is bucking the trend, the big apple more than holding its own. laura ingle live with us. >> according to the report we mentioned, one in seven metro areas across the nation will not reach pre-recession employment levels until at least 2020. metro areas have traditionally been the engines of u.s. economic growth, producing 85% of the country's jobs. and with slow growth expected in cities over the next decade, it does not bode well for the u.s. economy. california, the southwest, and florida are expected to struggle as housing continues to be a problem. while manufacturing is picking up, cities around the great lakes will suffer for years to come. >> unfortunately, those places were also hit very, very hard during the recession, so they've got a long way to come back and they probably won't recover, or the jobs they had before the recession for another decade or more. >> this new report put out by the u.s. conference of mayors shows there is one bright spot. that is new york city, which expects to be back at pre-recession employment levels by

is on, having a big rally today on capitol hill, and listen to what john mccain said on the senate floor quoting an editorial from the "wall street journal" on the editorial page. >> the tea party hob its could return to middle earth having defaulted the enemy. this is the kind of crack political thinking that turns sharron angle into g.o.p. senate nominees. the reality is the debt limit will be raised one way or another and the only issue now is with how much fiscal reform and what political fallout. >>reporter: that makes you wonder if it will take an elder statesman of both parties but someone like john mccain on the republican side, who is not in the leadership that has been meeting at the white house but outside the process, to say, look, folks, let's end the extremes and figure this out in the middle. >>shepard: thank you from the white house, ed. 62 percent of americans surveyed, an abc news poll from yesterday, say they want some combination of cuts, which are necessary, and revenues which are necessary. and no plan, not one, has that. not the boehner plan. not the reid plan, it
for those of us dealing with the very hot weather. back to you. >> thanks. >>> the big dust storm that hit arizona this week is now making it difficult for some people to breathe. the storm swept through the phoenix area on tuesday, swallowing the city's skyline. since then are the air has remained hazeied and dusty. and right now doctors across the phoenix area say they are busy treating patients suffering from asthma and other breathing problems. common symptoms include wheezing and coughing. >> i would equate it to walking to a smoke-filled room, something like that. that kind of thing, where even people with normal lungs get a little irritated. but imagine somebody with some -- inflammation. >> doctors say the best advice for people in the phoenix area is just to stay inside, until the air clears up. >>> the death toll from the tornado in may, that ripped through joplin, missouri, is now at 159. the city's public information office recently released a statement saying a woman has died from her injuries. the announcement was the first in two weeks regarding any deaths related to the sto
is because he hasn't been tough enough, and there wasn't a big distinction between him and president obama, and he's showing that once again now. martha: all right. talk to me, you know, when you look at this politically, "the wall street journal" basically said this morning if tea party encourages its members and representatives on capitol hill to hold tight and not give any ground in this, they're basically handing the presidency to barack obama again in 2012. what say you? >> what are we talking about? are we talking about who's going to be our next president, or are we talking about fixing the problems that face america? we need to quit worrying about the next elections and worry about whether we're going to survive financially. and there are plans that could do it, there are other plans that can't, but nobody is looking at the overspending, looking at directly in the eye and saying we have to stop this. we spend over $4 billion a day in borrowed money. that's enough to build two and a half space shuttles a day. martha: wow. well, that's an eye-opener. jenny beth martin, thank you very
through the force. this review is supposed to be shaped by the qdr but the big criticism is it didn't make tough choices. how will it work to help make the tough choices for the future? >> i think we have made tough choices. as we built the budget, you mentioned the $330 billion number, we ended production of the f 22 and the c-17. we have closed the joint forces command. we canceled the presidential helicopter. we have made tough choices and those tough choices came out of the strategy that was the strategy with the document for the strategy was the defense review. >> you think it's a valid shaping document, just the repry orization within the document? >> yes. tough go back looks at the priorities. you don't want to do an across the board shave. we want to cut from the lower priorities and protect the higher priorities. i identified cyber security, long range strike and unman air rielle capabilities as things you want to protect. >> what are some of the capabilities -- secretary gates had his own list, joint strike fighter and aerial tankers and war ships as being important things. we ar
are making it more difficult to get there. so i'm a big fan of the navy with one important exception that is on that saturday in november when we play the army-navy football game. >> having gone from the naval academy into the marine corp., i don't watch that game very often. so -- but it does seem to me that we are at tend of another inevitable historical cycle here when we have extended ground combat deployments that expand the size of the active duty army into the marine corp. at the expense very often of what i would call national strategic assets like our operational navy. i think i'm hearing from you that the same thing i heard from secretary panetta that the 313 ship goal for the navy is a reasonable goal. would that be correct? >> well, my ingaugements over the past three months suggest to me that it is. but again, i think we had a conversation a bit earlier about how do we keep strategy at pace with resource decisions. so that comprehensive strategy review that we're doing should it seems to me re-enforce that or cause it to think differently about it. one of the things i th
are big numbers, but we are looking forward as to how we push the afghan security system to a point where they can take care of themselves and in fact begin to run their country as they should. most of my good colleagues' arguments were better suited for the conversation when he in april with reference to the overall budget. that budget passed, this amount that we're now going to spend on the department of defense fits under the discretionary spending cap that we put in place back in april. the subcommittee on defense appropriations had done their work, allocated their amount of moneys across a lot of priorities, it said yes to this issue, so i rise in opposition to my colleague's amendment and would urge my colleagues to oppose it as well. i yield back. the chair: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the question is on the amendment offered by the gentleman from rhode island. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, the noes have it. the amendment is -- mr. cicilline: mr. chairman, i ask for a recorded vote. the chair: a recorded vote has been
'll be a gradual drawdown throughout the time. i think the next one, big group, will occur still in the summer and then the rest inform fall. >> and it -- >> courtney. >> hi, general rod reges, on the same line of questioning, the other combat unit that's going to come back who is that? is it brigade size? and do you anticipate that the drawdown of the 10,000 this year will be more troops that are coming back and not being replaced but they're still coming back at their normal end of the employment, versus being brought back early? >> the majority of them will come back and not be a redeployment coming behind them. that's how we'll try to do it. but there will be some that their tour will be curtailed a little bit. the final stable thoofs drawdown will be determined at a later date. >> who is the combat unit that you mentioned that you know of that's going to come back and not be replaced? >> two units, one here in kabul, it's the second of the 134th, and further, a little down in -- later in the summer, at the end of the summer, the 34 marines will come out and not be replaced and there's ano
increase that has created a job. it's an absurdity. the white house seems like they're chasing the big fish. we need the level of commitment that the president is demonstrating on tax increases to be used on deficit reduction and getting this economy back and under control. the question that has to be asked and has to be answered is when will this white house recognize that it is their very policies that are creating the obstacle of job creation? >> can you pass a deal as it requires to major entitlement reform? just a few weeks ahead of this deadline? >> everything is on the table, except raising taxes on the american people. >> speaker, are you closer to a deal now than you were two weeks ago? do you think it's going to have to come down to a meeting -- >> the conversations have gone on for weeks. both with the biden group and between the president and myself. but there is no agreement. >> is comprehensive tax reform possible -- >> we believe it would make america more competitive, help create jobs in our country, and it's something that is under discussion. >> [inaudible] >> we are not i
that this horrific act would take place against the people of libya, is just i think a big mistake. and it would undermine u.s. foreign policy that's been consistent since 1949 when nato was established. so i urge a no vote on this amendment. the chair: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. mr. dicks: i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: no further speakers. the question is on the amendment offered by the gentleman from california. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, the noes have it. mr. sherman: on that i request a recorded vote. the chair: pursuant to clause 6 of rule 18, further proceedings on the amendment offered by the gentleman from california are postponed. for what purpose does the gentleman from california rise? >> mr. chairman, i rise in support of my amendment which is at the desk. the chair: the clerk will report the amendment. the clerk: amendment offered by mr. rohrabacher of california. at the end of the bill before the short title add the following, section, none of the funds made available by this act may be used to p
